Martha Castor - JB82863
The Member admitted that she engaged in professional misconduct by: engaging in conduct or performing an act, relevant to the practice of nursing that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members of the profession as unprofessional in that the Member failed to participate after being selected by the Quality Assurance Committee for practice assessment.
The College and the Member presented the Panel with a Joint Submission requesting an Order that included an oral reprimand, a one-month suspension and terms, conditions and limitations on the Member’s certificate of registration, including attending two meetings with a Nursing Expert and participation in the College’s 2017 Quality Assurance Program.
The mitigating factors were that the Member cooperated with the College and showed remorse.
The Panel accepted the Joint Submission on Order and concluded that the proposed penalty was reasonable and in the public interest. The penalty was in line with what had been ordered in previous cases.
